I cannot live without this. I have been using this for years. It is my GO TO for any breakouts. If I have a blemish I use this twice a day after cleansing & toner and my breakouts are gone in a matter of days, if not by the end of the day. It is such a life saver but I got through it so quickly even when using as directed. I do use it everyday to prevent future breakouts on my jaw/neck where I'm prone. If you are looking for a new spot treatment... this one is perfect! it goes on smoothly, and there is no residue (like the clay spot treatments) please make it bigger sizes !!!
I love this balm. It has really improved my skin A LOT. Also, I love that it goes on light, so you feel like you don't have any sort of cream on your face, and it doesn't dry out your skin at all. It really is magic balm. Please make it in a larger size. It's bummer that it's so small, and because of that I find it's really only worth it to buy in the kit (the controlling cream and foam cleanser are also life savers, but I always run out of the balm first). If the balm was in a bigger size I would just buy the balm right when I run out. Super great products!! A+++
The Controlling Balm with Tea Tree Oil is one of my favorites. I used to feel like a grease monkey as the day progressed, and this keeps the shine off my face all day (no powder needed).
I am 35 and l deal with breakouts, blackheads even cystic breakouts. I have tried everything except medication. Peels, microderms, benzol products, salycidic products, retin A... You name it, I have or am trying it. Although some things worked for a short time, nothing has had a long lasting or drastic effect. UNTIL this product! I was on the verge of getting medication because I was so fed up and depressed about constant breakouts which always left scars. Then my estitician gave me the Controling Balm. She was so convinced it would help that she literally gave it to me, no charge. I probably would not have tried it if she wasnt so generous because I wansn't sure it would help, since nothing else had. But I was wrong! I started using it am/pm to get fast results. I used it with my regular skin care routine. I noticed within a few days my face was calmer and not as oily throughout the day. I have since notice that my blackheads are 80% less and I havent had a cystic breakout yet, even when I started my monthly cycle. I now use it during the day only and my retin a at night. Even wearing it under makeup. I have stopped using all the other products because this one is doing the trick. I am very happy with the results and I highly recommend it to everyone. Thank you!
This balm has saved my skin from it's out of control breakouts. For somebody who has dealt with acne for 3 years. I can finally say my skin has never looked so clear! My regimen always has to include the tea tree balm.
